Domestic Repair in Santa Cruz


Americans love their vehicles, and despite the popularity of Japanese and European brands, there are Americans who still prefer “American-made.” Buyers also know the importance of buying American brands because it helps the economy as a whole. Others buy out of “patriotism,” which is also a good practice.


The Koreans buy Korean cars, the Japanese buy Japanese cars, and Americans are encouraged to do the same.
